Oh, wait.  This is an interaction with the guest agent.  We have already
stated that ANY action that requires guest cooperation MUST require more
than plain domain:read privileges (for example, creating a snapshot
requires domain:fs_freeze if the quiesce flag is present; using
virDomainShutdownFlags requires domain:write if the guest agent is
involved).

Since the main use of this API is to query the list of mountpoints that
then feed virDomainFSFreeze, I think this should be @acl
domain:fs_freeze, rather than domain:read.  Even if it is a read-only
operation, it makes more sense to treat this command as a family where a
user is either given rights for all related freeze APIs or none of them.
